Climate and the orbital parameters of the Earth
Description: Two competing theories have been suggested to explain the sequence of glacial-interglacial epochs: either the variations of the Earth orbital elements, or the atmospheric composition in carbon dioxide. The most recent results of palaeoclimatology are clearly demonstrating that a synthesis of these two old hypotheses is needed. [Source: Comptes Rendus Geoscience]
